NATIONAL VETERANS RESOURCES

Michele Ladd and the Hero Mobile will be visiting with us at the fair!  Come out and listen to her mission to stop veteran suicide, tell her your story of serving our country and become part of her mission!

BE IN THE PARADE!

All floats should have a patriotic theme, honor our veterans, and show appreciation of their sacrifices.  Because this is a parade to show our veterans how much we appreciate their sacrifices,  the tradition of throwing candy and beads will not be allowed as we feel that is not a a way of honoring our veterans.

There will be no charge for participating in the parade and there will be 3  float ribbons,

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for Best Theme Presentation.
